I've checked Contacts/options but I don't see an option to change the default area code that is entered when a local number is entered without an area code. Where is that option set?

It's a windows option - control panel, phone and modem. outlook uses the default area code as its default.
Good grief;Phone/modem:confused: Who would have guessed??? Thanks for solving that mystery. It's been like the blinking 00:00 on a DVD :rolleyes:

How can i have that default are code automatically added/formatted when typing a 7-digit phone number into a Contact? (the way 2010 worked)

It should work that way - if you have an area code set in phone and modem options (outlook isn't shy about asking you to set it up.)
